On behalf of the PDGA, we are proud to announce that the 2016 PDGA Women’s Global Event’s registration is now sitting at 1,400+ participants world-wide, and we still have a few weeks to go! This world-wide women’s tournament consists of smaller satellite events being run on a course near you on May 14, 2016. The details of each event are subject to the Tournament Director, but every event is open and welcoming to female participants of any skill level and of any age. The competitors this year span across 19 PDGA divisions available ranging from 7 years old to 75 years young!

Happy New Year from the PDGA Women’s Committee!

We have been steadily working away on the details for the 2016 PDGA Women’s Global Event (WGE) since our Save The Date announcement in November. Thank you to all who have written and have expressed interest and support for the 2016 WGE on May 14th, the third running of this amazing biennial worldwide event!

Mark your calendars ladies! The PDGA Women’s Global Event (WGE) is officially set for May 14, 2016!

Join us in 2016, as disc golfers and the PDGA continue to encourage more women to head out to their local disc golf courses! On May 14th, Women Global Events will be run around the world simultaneously to “virtually” create the largest women’s tournament on the planet.

Two years ago, the PDGA created and hosted one of the most important new events for the sport of disc golf, the Women’s Global Event. It took months and months of planning, but when it was all said and done it was deemed a huge success. 636 women from 24 states in the USA joined forces with women in Norway, Finland, and Australia to compete in what we now consider one of our most cherished events.

Two months to go and we've already broken the records from 2012. We now have 630 women registered for 52 events spanning 28 states and 7 countries, and it's still growing!

Although the 600 available player’s packages have been reserved, it is not too late to participate in the event. Please visit our 2014 PDGA Women's Global Event page for information on how it works, how to sign up, how to register your event, and more. You may also contact the WGE tournament director, Karolyn O’Cull at [email protected] with any questions.

Congratulations to all of the women who participated in the Women’s Global Event this past weekend.

The first ever Women’s Global Event is just around the corner. There are over 40 registered Women’s Global Events around the world including events in Norway, Finland, Australia and 24 different states. So, find a WGE event near you and sign up online now! We will be accepting online registrations for only three more days. After May 4th, it will be up to the Tournament Director’s discretion to accept ‘week of’ and ‘day of’ registrations.

The Women’s Global Event on May 12 is growing to become the biggest Women’s field ever! We’re building the hype as we continue to encourage ladies to find their local Women’s Global Event. So far, we have 121 women registered throughout the 27 events around the US, Norway and Finland!
